Lovely walk to the top and fantastic views. There is a skateboard park at the bottom. Nice way to spend an hour or two.

After walking in the historic city center, this is where to go next. Open park (also for dogs) to wander around and enjoy the endless views to the sea.

We walked around here on a cold and wet day in November. The charm might have been lost on us, as we certainly couldn't see much of the views. There was a lot of very fresh air, but I think that this is somewhere best seen in the summer or better weather. The sculpture doesn't look at its best in... More

We did a trip to Gijon just for the day and went to the Cerro as a starting point. The walks are lovely, there are lots of little restaurants and we ended at the Play San Lorenzo. We parked a little away, at the Plaza de Europa and loved walking through the town.

Great for a typical park walk (though up a pretty steep hill!) and gives great views of both sides of the city of Gijón; to the east, sunny beaches and bustling shopping areas, and to the west, the cold industrial harbour, which in its own way is quite appealing. However, the epic cliff-edge is also interrupted by that strange sculpture... More

This can be a nice little walk, you can see remains of the old fort (nothing spectacular) and the new statue. If you want to spend some time walking, taking in fresh air from the sea, this is it.

From inside Eduardo Chillida´s monumental sculpture 'Praise of the horizon' you can feel the sound of the sea and have a unique view of Gijón´s surroundings. Don´t miss it!

We walked through the park with our grandmother and young daughter. Both were able to navigate the hilly terrain ok. There is a big Ship play set for kids on the south side and some open green areas to run in all around. At the very top of the headland is the old artillery bunkers which were kind of interesting...
